Toxic environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It seems like what we do most of the time is checking patient ID on samples.It’s frustrating that I went to uni to study for this job and now most of the time before you do anything you need to speak to a biochemist before you cancel a potassium of 7 when all other results are normal!? This isn’t a hard scenario. It’s so boring, there’s no challenge to the job, the machine and auto validation does most of the work, and the work that’s left for you to do you have to ask someone else’s opinion. Why did I do the degree? Why did I do the portfolio.


It’s a job at th e end of the day. Some people don’t even have that.


Management is very sneaky and has favourites

Great team

Nice and helpful colleagues, left the job due to long travel times. Majority of the seniors were nice , flexible working time.However, poor pay based compared with the workload.

Stressful, fast-paced working environment

Standard routine for ward nurses. Very good training system, multidisciplinary oriented sessions. Generally understaffed, short to no breaks, unpaid overtime.No time availability to fulfill both care needs and nursing documentation.Overall, rewarding job but poor system.




Short/no breaks, unpaid overtime

Good management and work life balance

I have never felt more at home, everyone (almost everyone but you always have them few everywhere you go) has been so friendly, management are approachable, money is okay, benefits are good, well-being is protected


Well-being programmes and benefits

No chance for Career Progression

Poor Management all though the Department was not like that when I started my Career there.Lack of Staff Progression Within the Department. No encouragement to Reach or achieve Goals.Correct Skillset needed For Work Life Balance. Not there. Views and Recommendations on This Subject were not welcome by Management. I left Work Feeling drained, tired And disatisfied that I would have to go back There the next day.Staff Treated Poorly. Advancements in Work and positive changes were not recognised and certainly Not Aknowlleged.All told if you require recognisation as a Valuable Member of Staff Then perhaps you should look elsewhere.Until Major Changes are Put into Place.


Standard Conditions; Staff HolidayMaternity Leave, Paternity Leave. Increase in days of. Statuoray Sick Pay. Work only 1 weekend in every six.


Long hours. No overtime Pay, you worked until the work was finished. No time off in luiw, Flexible working not encouraged. Staff to frightened to ask questions.

Matrons/So-called-managers had little experience

Matrons/So-called-managers had little experience of managing non-NHS brought-in, suddenly-qualified, Covid-19 Vaccinators. We came from multiple industries/services where work attitudes differed from the NHS norm - a "culture clash." As a former business consultant, I offered a couple of suggestions as to improving the vaccination service. Immediately, I was dumped! I requested further shifts and was offered no more during the summer of 2021. Clearly, middle management does not accept criticism or opportunities to improve.


Giving back: My late ex-wife who suffered multiple illnesses received exceptional care from the NHS


Intransigent NHS local management

No worries but salary

I worked around 4 years with NHS as Ambulance driver as driver my experience was fantastic I was very happy after first six months new manager make some changes in shift patterns and because of that some drivers left they reduced hours of work mean losing money then after one year again make some changes in shift times and again some drivers left NHS and management even not bothered. 4 years work on same salary not increase any thing I was really really disappointed.I think this left the job I make good decisions because got a new job very quick and much better than I thought.


No lunch


Short hours

OK place to work

Worked as an HCA in an out patient clinic for just over a year. The work was great and I learned a lot. The hospital did a great job keeping its staff up to date on requisite knowledge. However I didn’t enjoy working in the team. Very catty and there was (unfortunately) a clear divide between the nurses and HCAs. Lots of work to do to turn this around as it is deeply embedded in the culture.
